The High Price of Impatience: Michelle Jets Off To Hawaii With The Kids For 17 Day Vacation Before The President Can Leave ... At A Cost of $100,000 To The taxpayer By LYDIA WARREN 16th December 2011
With thousands of families struggling to raise funds for Christmas, you would think the Obamas might manage a little thriftiness.
But today, Michelle Obama and her two daughters fly to Hawaii for a 17-day holiday - days before the president joins them. The separate flights will incur costs of more than $100,000 to the taxpayer.
Vacation: The President was scheduled to begin his trip on December 17 - but his family will leave without him. Last year's trip to Hawaii, pictured, was also delayed Obama has vowed to stay in Washington until Congress passes an extension of the payroll tax cut and will join his family before Christmas. By not waiting for Congress to reach a decision before jetting off together, the family is inflicting eye-watering costs on the taxpayer.

“At A Cost of $100,000 To The taxpayer”
We should be so lucky. Hidden expenses and cost overruns will multiply that paltry sum 10 times over. That’s counting extra Secret Service, cooks, servants, family, friends, PR for media, cars, meals, entertainment and so on. These people collect fringe benefits like Imelda Marcos collected shoes.
Aren’t they afraid Hawaii will capsize?
Is she taking her “special friend” Secret Service agent with her on this trip?
Not to worry, the Duffer-in-Chief will soon visit the links in those Asian Islands. We will see pictures of his golf togs, bike rides and maybe even at the beach. We are so lucky!
I wish someone would compose a list of cost per day since Obama took office of Michelle Obama’s expenditures tax payers money on her private hair stylist, beauty treatments, cosmetic surgeons, trips , clothes, decorating, etc. and compare them to the past first ladies!
Michelle and her kids don’t fly on the same plane as Obama because they fear it is dangerous
What flight is Bo, the pup, going on?
Oh, my dear, I’m sure the Obongos retain private tutors for the princesses, donochano.
Best wishes in your job search! Hope a new door will be opened for you.
Too bad they did not punch in the wrong heading and land in the alutians.
Only IF she/IT possessed such qualities of which you speak.
They are such selfish people. Low income people can’t even afford to have Christmas and the Obama’s grab everhything they can? Taxpayers pay the bills for them!
While Rome burns.....
Just look in a mirror. :(
The good news is that despite the Obamas' delusions to the contrary, there is no free lunch. They are destined to learn the hard way. As soon as they are hurled headlong into the Abyss, they'll figure out that it's payback time, and the devil is a loan shark. Heh, they might even know that already, but think that the rules don't apply to them.
Talk about a couple of evil morons sowing the seeds of their own destruction.
Hey Obamas: your harvest is almost ready. Bon Appetit!
Never happen, there's already bogus numbers out there provided by the white house that allege that much of these high class vacations are paid for by the Obama's, including the $3,000 plus per day accomodations.
How the hell these grifters can afford those prices is beyond my comprehension. What is it about Democrats with nothing getting elected to the white house and becoming instant multi-millionaires?????????
What budget line item does it go under?
Bo has his own plane. Piss be upon you.
>>>woman thinks shes Cleopatra<<<
I can honestly say that they have taken more vacations in the last 3 years than I have in the last 20 years.
It's good to be King.
Small point, but in the picture 0bama is wearing makeup.
